Step 2: Configure Shopify Account

Create API credentials

In order to allow Dynamics 365 Business Central to securely connect to Shopify, you need to create credentials in Shopify that Dynamics 365 will use to connect to Shopify.

Follow the steps below to create the credentials: 

  • Log in to the Shopify Admin page of your store e.g.: https://.myshopify.com/admin

  • In the menu on the left, click “Apps” 

  • Click right below for "Manage private apps" 

  • Click “Create private app” in the top right corner 

  • Enter a title for the app and set the permissions as shown in the screenshot below. When finished, click “Save app” in the top right corner. 

  • When you return to the overview of the Private apps, the API Key and Password will be shown. This information will be used later on in the setup of Dynamics 365 Business Central. 

Step 3: Shopify Connector Setup
